I'm interested to know, were you frightened of giving birth and going through labour before or when you first fell pregnant?
How do you think being frightened affected your choices or the birth you had?
Did you ever get over your fear?
And if you did, how did you manage that?
With my first birth I knew fear was not good for labour and i knew birth was natural and normal but it's hard not to be frightened when you've never done it before and everyone says how bad labour is!
With my 2nd birth I had no or at least very little fear of birth and the birth was amazing.
What were your experiences?
